Céline Rudolph

Vocalist and composer Céline Rudolph glides between Berlin, São Paulo, Paris and New York, between tongues and genres, always landing in the very heart of music. „Music is like breathing, it was there ever since I could remember“ Céline Rudolph says and recollects how her father always played a break when jamming on the guitar, so that there was a space for his children to create improvised lines or percussive fills. Born in Berlin and raised with her parents’ rich record collection, the daughter of a Frenchwoman from Bordeaux and a cosmopolitan musical enthusiast from Berlin, started singing along with an LP from João Gilberto performing the Brazilian classic “Rosa Morena” to an LP at the age of five

Clarinetist Dexter Payne's release, "Prá Você" (Dexofon Records) is still getting great airplay and good reviews: Huff Post, Downbeat Magazine, Offbeat Magazine, AllAboutJazz.com, and more! Payne choses the scenic route through the world of music. The scenic route always takes longer, destination-wise. Worthwhile? Apparently he is convinced, "I moved to Montana for the winter and stayed 18 years." He based there with his wife, the late Judy Roderick, and toured from coast to coast with her and with swing band, Big Sky Mudflaps, including repeat performances on NBC Today Show and Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion

Conrado Paulino

Style "...is like an effortless blend of Joe Pass and Baden Powell" [Fabio Carrilho, Violão PRO Magazine, Brazil]
The style of guitarist, composer and arranger Conrado Paulino is an original fusion of three major musical schools. The first one embraces the repertoire of Brazilian music, a universe from which his creative basis takes its shape.
The second one reveals itself in a jazzy influence that becomes conspicuous in its harmonically modern concept and its ample room for improvisation on his arrangements.
The last one is the utilization of classical guitar techniques, notably in his use of arpeggios and counter-melodies
